Just hope EA's monopoly with regard to some other franchises (FIFA, NBA, Cricket) also comes to an end. Those series of games are getting crappier every year.

I wish something like this happened for SBK, cause after 2000 there was none as good and complete as EA's SBK 2001.

WTF does EA has to do with this? :|
the last F1 (pc) game WAS from EA. after that Sony bought F1 rights till now.

just HOPE that the next F1 doesnt become ALL SHOW (gfx.) NO GO (gameplay) like CMR DiRT.

The FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP games will be developed using the evolution of the award-winning EGO™ Game Technology Engine, Codemasters’ highly versatile cross-platform middleware technology. Its advanced graphics and physics technology brings an unmatched cinematic quality and realism to interactive entertainment.

The EGO Engine is currently being deployed in the creation of Race Driver: GRID™, the latest in Codemasters Studio’s international circuit-based racing series. Set to be a landmark release when it launches on May 30th, Race Driver: GRID was recently hailed as “The driving game of the summer” by BBC Top Gear magazine.

i wish EA buy out the WRC license:)), which agin Sony has.:x
